Hey everyone.

Thanks for having me here and for talking about my book "Soft Skills: The Software Developer's Life Manual."

I'm happy to answer as many questions as I can.

Also, wanted to give a quick update: Soft Skills is no longer MEAP, it's actually live and released. The print version is shipping right now.

Welcome John! That means this promo is a choice of print book or e-book. At the time of scheduling the promo, it was still MEAP only.
